Lucky Stride 2008 Alley Cat Ride Report

The threat of rain didn't stop me from heading over to the ride. It started and ended at Junctionview Studios in Grandview. I think there were about 40+ riders at the start. I was #33. It was a Le Mans mass start. We grouped at the back of the studio and ran to the bikes that were sprawled on the ground out front with our manifest. I rode with Megan and Philip for most of the ride. We rode the checkpoints in a clockwise pattern. If you are familiar with the checkpoints you will understand what I mean.

Junctionview Studios - START
Mirror Lake at OSU checkpoint
Bike Polo field at OSU checkpoint
Maynard and Summit grocery store checkpoint
Third Hand repair pit stop (pump up the wheels on Megan's bike and adjusted both wheels so they were actually connected to the bike)
Milo - Artist Coop? checkpoint
Main Library checkpoint
Spaghetti Warehouse checkpoint
Dodge Park checkpoint
McKinley Park checkpoint
Junctionview Studios - FINISH

It started to rain between the Dodge Park checkpoint and McKinley Park. We headed over the goofy Grandview Avenue on ramp street hill hybrid, whatever the hell that thing is to get to Goodale. It rained steady and heavier as we got closer to the Studio. I signed in with ten minuted left but can't remember what I placed. Not first, not even close.
